Diversify Your Portfolio: Invest in Gold Today
Gold is History's Money...
The scarcity of gold is a wonder. The total above ground inventory of gold would fill a room sixty feet by sixty feet by sixty feet. While America’s steel industry produces an estimated 10,500 tons of steel per hour, only around 2,000 tons of gold is mined each year. But the precious metal is not an inexhaustible resource: Recent industry forecasts point to a possible 12,500 tons of gold remaining in the ground.

Diversification That Won't Put All of Your Assets in the Same Boat...
The truth is, unlike paper, gold isn't merely symbolic of wealth. It is wealth. The old rules had gold employed solely as an antidote for inflation, high interest rates, or political uncertainty. Although gold is admirably suited for these roles - there's no better answer to today's uncertainty, in fact - it's best evaluated on its own record.
Think about it: if all you do to diversify your portfolio is add another mutual fund, stock or bond, you're still afloat in same "paper" boat.
People buy gold because gold is virtually the opposite of paper, because it has historically backstopped stocks and funds by reacting differently (some call this inverse correlation), it may be your most logical choice for spreading investment risk.
By far, the most popular, most credible and most liquid form to buy gold is to buy gold bullion coins. The major precious metal coins include the American Eagle, the Gold Buffalo, the South African Krugerrand, the Canadian Maple Leaf, and the Austrian Philharmonic. These coins are all available in one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth ounce sizes. In addition, gold is available in numismatic (or semi-numismatic) or "rare" coins. All of these gold coins can be viewed, priced and purchased by clicking here.
